 Traditional Q function representation

Representation
 New representation (Craig’93)

 Leads to closed form solution for Ps in PSK
 Very useful in fading and diversity analysis
Linear Modulation in Fading

##  In fading s and therefore Ps random

 Performance metrics:
 Outage probability: p(Ps>Ptarget)=p(<target)
 Average Ps , Ps:

##  Probability that Ps is above target

 Equivalently, probability s below target
 Used when Tc>>Ts

Ps(s)
 Used in combined shadowing and flat-fading
 Ps varies slowly, locally determined by flat fading
 Declare outage when Ps above target value
Doppler Effects

##  High doppler causes channel phase to

decorrelate between symbols

##  Leads to an irreducible error floor for

differential modulation
 Increasing power does not reduce error

##  Error floor depends on BdTs

ISI Effects
 Delay spread exceeding a symbol time
causes ISI (self interference).

##  ISI leads to irreducible error floor

 Increasing signal power increases ISI power

##  ISI requires that Ts>>Tm (Rs<<Bc)

Main Points
 In fading Ps is a random variable, characterized by
average value, outage, or combined outage/average
 Outage probability based on target SNR in AWGN.
 Fading greatly increases average Ps .
 Alternate Q function approach simplifies Ps calculation,
especially its average value in fading (Laplace Xfm).
 Doppler spread only impacts differential modulation
causing an irreducible error floor at low data rates
 Delay spread causes irreducible error floor or
imposes rate limits
 Need to combat flat and frequency-selective fading
 Focus of the remainder of the course
